It follows SBS announcing a content partnership with the US-Canadian youth Vice Media in June. Local commissions including The Feed, plus international News are expected to remain, with the channel to be owned and operated by SBS.
Programming details are yet to be announced, but SBS said in a statement, “SBS VICELAND will feature the best of SBS 2 news, sport and entertainment alongside the best programs from VICELAND – the distinctive channel of VICE-produced programs overseen by award-winning Director Spike Jonze, which launched to critical acclaim in the United States earlier this year. The line-up will include new shows covering culture, music, sports, fashion, technology and more, from around the world.”
SBS previously partnered with Scripps Networks in the US for SBS Food Network.
